Building on commitments made by the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) Member States at Conferences to promote the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty’s (CTBT) entry into force, the ambassadors of France and Morocco in Vienna, Florence Mangin and Omar Zniber, pledged to work together at international summits and regional conferences to promote and coordinate outreach activities for the Treaty, and invited other States to do the same.
To assist in this process, an action plan and a rolling list of relevant political events at both the global and regional level were laid out. States were encouraged to promote the Treaty through individual initiatives, joint declaration or resolutions.
Enrolling every country on Earth in the CTBT and raising global awareness about it could be two ways to gain the Treaty’s entry into force, suggested the French and Moroccan ambassadors who are coordinating the entry-into-force process.
States were also invited to share information on their efforts to promote the Treaty at different events. Significant news, statements, and reports on these outreach activities will be published on the CTBTO website upon request.
